Story

A majority of school children in the slums of Chennai come from homes where the parents are illiterate. Working in informal jobs, such as construction work, domestic work and street vending, Children from these homes rarely go on to complete higher education and often fail their 10th grade public exams, so dropping out of the education system.  

Lacking parental guidance these children often end up doing the same insecure work that their parents do, perpetuating the cycle of poverty.  For several years now SAVE Trust has run a network of  20 after school tuition centres which are attended by more than 500 children, aged between 6-16, 5 days a week, located within communal facilities in the slum.
Our crowdfunding aim is to raise money to expand the network of Tuition centres to more slums in North Chennai. Any money you donate will go towards Teacher salaries for 1 year, to provide this vital link which aims to keep slum children in the education system, enabling them to transform their future
